    Hey I'm glad to be here! I've used this site as a non-member quite a bit learning, and though it was finally time to join.

    I got 8 road island reds, and 3 marans from an auction today(the wife bought them when I wasn't looking) and I'm super stoked to start raising them.

    Aside from the new chickens I raise rabbits(Flemish giants, and new Zealand) and hopefully soon pigs, and goats.

    I look forward to learning as much as possible!
